Previous winners

Philanthropist of The year Awards

The Philanthropist of the Year Awards has emerged as the ‘Oscars of Irish Philanthropy’ and the list of previous winners is building into an impressive group of people. We introduced the award for Local Philanthropist in 2007, though this was discontinued in 2012 and incorporated into the National/Ireland category. A new corporate category was introduced in 2012.
